Yield: 4 servings.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup finely chopped sorrel leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 onion, chopped
  •  Milk or heavy cream, to taste


  1. In a heavy soup pot, melt the butter over medium heat. (Don’t use an aluminum pot, because of the high acidity of the sorrel.)
  2. Add the chopped sorrel leaves, and stir. When the leaves appear melted, add the onion, and stir to mix.
  3. Gradually whisk in the milk or heavy cream until the sauce reaches your desired consistency and has a smooth, creamy, green appearance.
